Bubba Watson on riling up the Ryder Cup crowd at Gleneagles: 'No, I will not be doing that'

Bubba Watson is promising to not be so…well, Bubba at the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles.

The U.S. Ryder Cup team player told The Guardian he would be on his best behavior when playing in Scotland on Sept. 26-28, stepping back from his crowd-riling, emphatically emotional norm.

Everyone remembers when Watson had the crowd going berserk at the first tee at the 2012 Ryder Cup at Medinah. If you don’t, let us remind you.

Watson said getting the crowd excited had a place at Medinah because the U.S team was on home turf. But in Scotland?

“No, I would never do that, especially on foreign soil where they might be against that,” Watson told The Guardian. “I wasn’t thinking about doing that but you never know. When I get over there I might get excited and do it anyway.”

Maybe he should. We wouldn’t want Watson to get upstaged overseas, especially if he’s paired with Ian Poulter again.
